Everyone of us is trying to escape life for some or the other reason.Depression is taking over the world. Suicides, Anti-depressant pills, sleeping pills and what not. Well, it doesn’t take too much to respond to life in a positive way.We all possess an eternal and indestructible “palace of happiness” within us.
There were days when I felt “How do I live my life?”, I was standing alone in a wasteland.I felt I got no space to live on this battlefield. My daily life was worse than ordinary and was unexciting.With passing days, I figured few hints for a happy life and began valuing countless glittering treasures.
1. Happiness is an inside job
Stop thinking that you need a pastime. Don’t use love as an escape. By that i Literally mean NEVERRR. When in love,life seems filled with drama and excitement; you feel like a leading character in a novel.The fact is that the euphoria is unlikely to last for long. Achieve smiles for yourself by developing your own character.
2. Own who you are
I wouldn’t satisfy you by saying that you are flawless. Each of us has our own flaws. But you need not compare to others. The more you compare, the miserable you feel about yourself. Your life is a lot better than a 3-year old kid begging for food on the street. Be grateful for what you have.
Among all, this one’s my favorite. Seeing the world provides an education you can’t get in school. Travel as far as you can. Touch the mountains,swim in the seas,fall from the sky or fly high. Move to different cities. Meet new people, learn their food, language, culture.Trust me, this is fun.
4. Do not be a Bubble
One thing I’ve learnt is,never talk about your goals to anybody. When you do good, there are people who are jealous of your progress.You don’t need such negativity. Do not be a bubble in this life. The world is cruel than you may think and even a touch can be fatal.
5. Adopt a pet if your schedule allows
This is not as difficult as it may sound. Once u have a furry ball, your life changes for better. I am absolutely fond of dogs. They are like a partner. You can talk to them, cuddle with them and voila, your body generates happy hormones.HA-HA-HA.
6. Strive to grow and evolve
Indulge yourself in something you have always wished to do.Learn Instruments,music, language,horse ride.Take up a sport, dive in the swimming pool or Penn down your thoughts.
How to live is an inescapable issue that confronts all who are born in this world.A life filled with hope is strong.Give time to it, Nurture it and everything may fall in place.
